Essential Information and Tips for Travel in Ecuador

Regardless of its closeness to the equator, Ecuador spans three dissimilar climates (coast, sierra and jungle) that keeps everyone guessing. Ecuador has two distinct seasons: the dry winter from June to September and the wet summer from December to March. The best time to visit the highland areas is during winter, when the skies are clearer and drier conditions makes for happier hiking and trekking. The Amazon, on the other hand, is always wet and warm with up to 77% humidity - even in the dry season. Ecuador’s high seasons are generally linked to their festivals which are around Christmas (December – January) and Easter (April). Most prices go up during the high season and most places are really crowded. You should make reservations well in advance if you are planning to go during this time of year.

I would like to visit Equador and perhaps purchase or build a little getaway close or on the beach. Any suggestions?
